ARC Review: Model Citizen by Lissa Kasey

Oliver “Ollie” Petroskovic’s life as an international supermodel was heading in the right direction. He worked part-time for his brother at his detective agency—Petroskovic Haven Investigations—and had just bought his dream house. But all that changed when he found his brother dead, a victim of PTSD-induced suicide.

Almost a year later, Ollie is trying to keep his brother’s business afloat, but can’t get his PI license. Then his brother’s best friend, Kade Alme, shows up, fresh from the battlefield after a close brush with death. Kade is looking for a new life, in more ways than one, and with PI license in hand, he’s exactly what Ollie needs to keep PHI running.

When one of Ollie's childhood friends gets in trouble, Ollie feels he has to help. Kade insists on investigating if only to keep Ollie safe. Neither realizes the danger they’re in as someone tries to tear them apart before they can find solid ground together.

Dani's rating:

This is a fast-paced book, no doubt about it.

I really liked Kade who's protective of Ollie and a nice guy all around. I have a thing for military men, and Kade was about perfect: smart, gentle, and good with his hands. *ahem*

Ollie, who's prickly and defensive, was harder to like. He's an androgynous model cum PI who likes to wear heels, skirts, and ... wait for it ... manties. I do love boys in lacy knickers!

Ollie constantly dismisses Kade's feelings. I get that he lost his brother and his last relationship was with a complete douchebag, but I needed him to leave the pity party already.

While I don't mind a side of mystery with my romance, I'm not a fan of romance playing second fiddle to the mystery, as was the case here.

The mystery was rather predictable and the "porn house" plot way OTT, but I rolled with it.

Model Citizen is an easy read with some sexy moments. I would have given this book a higher rating had it not been for the ending, which I consider a cliffhanger.

And cliffhangers piss me off.
